The group's origins date back to the late 1970s, named the band the Consequence of Sound when Fletcher began playing music with his band colleague Vince Clarke.
The band was initially named Composition of Sound but decided not to put that name to use and later renamed the band to the name it uses now which was officially launched in 1980 as Depeche Mode after singer David Gahan clashed with a French fashion magazine of the same name.
“Jesus, ” People Are People ”and“ True Policy ” are some of the songs they have produced.
The band was introduced to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2020.
